In Owl, award-winning photographer Paul Bannick uses his intimate yet dramatic images to track four different nesting owl species--Northern Pygmy, Burrowing, Great Gray, and Snowy--throughout the course of one year and in four distinct habitats. Readers follow along at the nest as each stage in an owl's life is chronicled: courtship, mating, and nesting in spring; fledging and feeding of young in summer; dispersal and learning independence in fall; and, finally, winter's migration, unusual irruptions, and the everyday struggle to survive.

Chapter: Surviving the winter, p 153

Some owls establish their own territory, while others live on the edge of a territory of a more experienced bird that is willing to fight to defend it. Some, called “floaters,” take a bigger gamble and live secretively inside an established territory.

Bannick did a superb job researching owls across time and place. Images in the book are breathtaking. This book would be a nice table-top book to savor year round.
